Nunca es Tarde



My Day 14 warrior chica for the 29 Faces Challenge and Sunday Sketches is "Nunca es Tarde," aka It's Never Too Late.

Thinking love had escaped her, she didn't realize her soul mate was with her all along...the playful friend who always listens, makes her laugh and helps right her wrongs.

This warrior woman has opened her eyes and is truly loving what she sees.

Nunca es tarde cuando la dicha es buena./It's never too late when the dicha is good. (LOL - I can't find a good translation for "dicha." Anyone?)

Optimista



My Day 13 chica for the 29 Faces Challenge is "Optimista" because no matter how dark it gets, she always manages to keep her sunny side up and her eyes focused on the light (at least one of them).

Some say she's dramatic but she likes to think of herself as theatrical, a woman with a pulse and a zest for life. She tells them she'd rather be a live wire than a wilted wallflower.

This warrior woman is a passionate storyteller, especially when it's her story she's telling.

Misteriosa



My Day 12 portrait for the 29 Faces Challenge and Paint Party Friday is "Misteriosa." Although she's soft spoken, a woman of few words, and comes across as rather shy, she thrives on cultural diversity and enjoys meeting new people.

She refuses to marry but adores kids and often reads bedtime stories to children in emergency shelters. At home she prefers to read suspense thrillers and believes that because she loves mysteries so much, she has now become one.

Libertad



"Libertad" is the name of my Day 11 portrait for the 29 Faces Challenge. This freedom fighter has made some tough decisions and now finds herself on her own. A part of her is frightened beyond belief as she faces the unknown, but the thought of being trapped for the rest of her days with what she does know is a far greater fear.

She's stronger than she thinks she is.

Jugetona



My Day 10 girl for the 29 Faces Challenge is known as "Jugetona" because Playful is her middle name.

This warrior woman always carries humor and enthusiasm in her survival kit because there's nothing like a good chuckle and a sense of adventure to heal all hurts.

The world is her playground.

Cielito Lindo



My Day 9 portrait for the 29 Faces Challenge is "Cielito Lindo," which means Pretty Little Sky.This charming chica is as soft as a cloud baby Afghan on the outside yet tough as nails, unbreakable, on the inside.

When suitors confuse her for a damsel in distress, she not only puts them in their place, she leaves them in a state of shock.

Never let a pretty face fool you.

Luz de la Mañana



My Day 8 portrait for the 29 Faces Challenge is "Luz de la Mañana," which translates to Light of the Morning.

This warrior woman believes that every day brings new hope and opportunities, therefore, no matter how dark the evening, she knows when she pulls back the curtains in the a.m., she will see the light.

Btw, Luz doesn't just mean Light, it's also the name used to reference the Virgin Mary aka La Señora de la Luz.
